What is lithotripsy?

Lithotripsy is a noninvasive procedure to remove kidney stones. It is often recommended for patients with kidney stones that are too large to pass through the urinary tract. The most common form of this procedure is extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL), which uses high-energy shock waves to treat kidney stones (and sometimes gallbladder or liver stones). The procedure is normally performed by a urologist and takes about an hour to complete.
